"it was a setup" he said. "they were armed with automatic weapons. some had their faces covered and wore flak jackets." he told us there was an explosion when the attack began, and then the shooting started. he was wounded by shrapnel in his left leg. then he was shot in the other leg. he told us the guards were no match for the attackers. the american flag used to fly on that flag pole behind me. now, that's about all that's left of america's presence in benghazi. most residents we spoke to were upset about the attack. ambassador stevens was well known here. benghazi was where he helped the rebels overthrow muammar qadadffi. anna ajalali, and amna el gerhiani who both live next door in this residential neighborhood said they were sorry. >> we want to pass one thing to the americans and to the whole world that what happened here is not representing the libyans, and especially not representing our islam. we're not like that. >> we feel shame to be honest with you. we feel shame for what happened. i mean, we wish we cooled-- >> for what happened to the u.s. > we could have saved him. they were here to help us and they helped us and they were helping us, and we really need this help. >> pelley: charlie, we're told the consulate was a temporary facility, really just a house in a neighborhood. how was it defended? >> reporter: well, scott, it's not what you would call a heavily fortified compound. it's barely a fortified compound. there are metal gates on three sides of it and there are barbed wire on top of cement walls. one thing, we didn't really notice any evidence of a forced entry at those gates or anywhere else on the compound made us a little bit curious. also, we never saw anyone in the way of investigators, whether they were libyan or american. and we were really able to scm and go as we pleased and there was nobody there protecting, essentially, a crime scene. >> pelley: charlie, thanks very much. the body of ambassador christopher stephens and the other fallen americans are at a u.s. airbase in germany tonight. who was behind their murders? david martin has been talking to his sources at the pathy. >> reporter: a radical islam group is the leading suspect in the attack. the name means supporters of islamic law, and u.s. officials describe it it as an offshoot of al qaeda. at least one of the attackers was photographed at the scene. and libyan officials claim to to have already made arrests. attorney general eric holder cut short an overseas trip to return to washington, and a law enforcement source said the f.b.i. would begin the investigation by interviewing the 30 american sush viefers of the attack who are now at a u.s. military wais in germany. the attackers struck at 10 p.m. local time tuesday and within 15 minutes were inside the compound firing on the main building where ambassador chris stevens, information manager sean smith, and a security officer had already begun destroying classified documents. smoke and flames from a rocket-probelled grenade which exploded on the roof, drove the security officer ow of the building, but he went back in to find stevens and smith. state department spokeswoman victoria nuland described what happened next. >> when he got to sean smith, he was already dead. he pulled him from the building. he went back into the building with additional security forces, but was unable to locate ambassador stevens before the fire overcame the building. >> reporter: the battle then shifted to an annex where two other americans, former navy seal glen doherty, and a still-un identified state department security guard were killed. apparently out-numbered and outgunned by their attackers. the bodies of the four americans are scheduled to come home tomorrow. a chilling reminder that while osama bin laden may be dead, his sympathizers are alive and dangerous. >> pelley: david, you reported in your story that there were 30 americans at the consulate who got out? how did they get out of there? >> reporter: all the americans took shelter in the annex to the consulate and were hunkered down there until after about four and a half hours, libyan forces finally got control of the situation. then the americans were taken to the benghazi airport, flown to tripoli, and from there to germany. >> pelley: thanks, david. in his phone call to the president of egypt, president obama said the u.s. rejects efforts to denigrate islam but he added there is never any justification for violence. these were the protests at the embassy in cairo today, and holly williams is there. >> reporter: the protesters have become riots are, fighting running street battles with the egyptian police, who were out in force. today, there was chaos as young men threw stoabz and molotov cocktails while security forces countered with tear gas, all of it triggered by the american-made film that deeply offended many muslims. dr. wisam abd el-wares say businessman and ultraconservative muslim who organized the earliest protests. can we walk down the corridor together? >> we cannot walk together. >> reporter: he insisted he couldn't walk side by side with a woman because it's against his religion. he told u he didn't mean for the demonstrations to turn violent and has now called for them to end. but he doesn't accept responsibility. this film was a low-budget effort. it was made by a hand full of people. and it doesn't represent the beliefs or the feelings of a majority of americans. why do you think it's important? "it doesn't matter if only a few peopleaw the film," he said. "any insult to the prophet muhamid is upacceptable. "the film may have been the spark, but these protests feed off deeper tensions, laid bare by a revolution that forced egypt's belong-time dictator from power last favor. with an islamist party in power now, anti-american feeling is growing. today, more than 48 hours after the protests began, the egyptian president, mohammad morsi, vowed to protect foreign embassies, but he also denounced those who insult the prophet muhamid. it was a show of unity with the islamists who support him and a clear sign of how egypt's relationship with america is changing. >> pelley: hole williams is joining us from tahrir square in the middle of cairo. holly, i wonder, low damaging is all of this for u.s.-egyptian relations? >> scott, egypt has been a u.s. ally for three decades. the country averages $2 billion in american aid every year, but then the arab spring brought a revolution here in egypt, which the u.s. supported, and now the country has an islamist president and a new political mood. so there was already a rift, but with the last few days seem to have done is widen it. >> pelley: holly, we're hearing that banging in the background. it sounds like tear gas canisters going of? >> that's right. there are still a few hundred people, perhaps 1,000 maximum on the street, and egyptian riot police are sporadically firing tear gas canisters in their direction, trying to push them, i suppose, further away from the u.s. embassy here in cairo. >> pelley: a developing situation. holly, thank you. moving to the economy now, the federal reserve today decided to take further action to give the economy a boost. wall street liked it. the dow soared 206 points. and we asked wyatt andrews to tell us more about what the fed plans to do. >> reporter: it's the first time the federal reserve has committed to boost the economy ever month and keep interest rates low until unemployment goes down. fed chairman ben bernanke said the economic recovery, especially in the u.s. job market, is stuck. >> this is a main street policy because what we're about here is trying to get jobs going. we're trying to create more employment. >> reporter: specifically, the fed will buy $40 billion worth of mortgage bobdz every month, the idea being to drive mortgage rates even lower than their historic lows now. bernanke says if it works the plan should increase home buying, help the stock market, and drive up consumer spending. >> if people feel that their financial situation is better because their 401(k) looks better, for whatever reason-- their house is worth more-- they're more willing to go out and spend and that's going to provide the demand that firms need in order to be willing to hire and invest. >> reporter: while wall street love the announcement, the fed's open-ended commitment to keep interest rates low has i down side. it could hurt retirees living on fixed incomes and anyone invested in savings accounts or money market funds. republican nominee mitt romney, who has already promised to fire ben bernanke, called the fed's intervention, "confirmation that president obama's policies have not worked. we should be creating wealth "romney said in a statement, "not printing dollars." republicans also fear that bernanke may have timed this effort to increase hiring as an election-year gift to the president. bernanke rejected that, scott, saying the fed's timing was related to a clearlying stagnant economy, not to politics. >> pelley: wyatt, thanks. pore days before the election, president obama has a small lead in the polls. do you think there's a reasonable chance that you could lose this election? we'll have the president's answer to that question when the cbs evening news continues.
